Conversation: Reckoning Stories, Transforming Our Futures: Repairing the Harm of Eugenics in California
Tamika Middleton Virginia Espino Ena Suseth Valladares
Illuminating the recent anti-eugenics win in California, of a reparations program to repair the decades-long state-sanctioned harm inflicted on survivors of reproductive abuse, this discussion will spotlight the production of “No Mas Bebes,” a feature film about the sterilization of Mexican mothers in Los Angeles in the sixties and seventies. Reproductive Justice organizers, from California Latinas for Reproductive Justice, will speak about the powerful campaign and what it will take to reckon with the past in order to create non-eugenic futures.
